This is most definitely one of the great initiatives around the holiday season in my opinion.
I am not an emotional kind of guy. I am a wall of steel (hahahaha). But this show on Jeremy Mansfield’s show in the morning really makes me want to weep.
It’s a strange kind of emotion, it’s a rational, uncontrollable urge to weep when I hear the wishes that people make.
What makes the situation even more incredible for me is that within SA’s current social platform there actually are many people who just want to give.
CEO’s, big company’s, small business, individuals, family and friends and anyone else Highveld calls upon is willing to help out those in need.
Today’s wish was just too much for me to actually handle though so I wasn’t able to listen to it all. A little girl of 12 months old was diagnosed with rare cancer of the eye and was going blind. The parents merely asked for a double bed, nothing more. They ended up receiving a few things, the largest was R100 000 lump sum from Primedia (and the bed).
Where? Where does this happen? Not everywhere, not in SA, but on Highveld stereo.
You might think this is some sort of bias post, but I am personally not a fan of the breakfast show on Highveld, other than Joffers My Boy. I am a Gareth Cliff listener. But this is definitely one area where Highveld blows 5fm out of the water. Charity.
If you live in JHB and don’t listen to the show, I think it’s time you started. If you don’t live in JHB, get to the Highveld website and see what you can do to help out, listen live and learn more about the Christmas Wish.
